This one is a scan from a picture that is probably from more than thirty years ago (early 1980s, before we all had internet, ipods, ipads, tablets and other such things).

My soon-to-be brother-in-law Brian wanted to watch Wimbledon, and sit in the garden with his glass of beer. But the sun was hot and he was worried about the effect of the heat on the little portable television he was watching.............. so he found some sunscreen for it.

And he didn't have any garden chairs, so the fireside chair from the lounge went out with him.

Television, beer, armchair, umbrella and a sunhat. He's not really very eccentric............

Memories - ah! I've just realised something else - he supported the umbrella with a garden spade, and used the handle of the umbrella to hang his shoes up.

And a kitchen stool to put the television on.

The whole thing is ......... well, I'll leave that to you!
